It's not exactly a secret...

It's not exactly a secret that I suck at this whole blogging thing. But I bet that my readers would rather me spend time writing stories than random blog posts anyway so I guess I don't feel THAT bad. ;)
As it is, I figured I'd pop on over here and just give a little update about what my writing "schedule" looks like for the rest of the year and into 2015 (is it blowing anyone else's mind that 2015 is right around the corner?). I use the term "schedule" very loosely because I don't necessarily have a strict one. It's more of a guideline really. :)

Currently I'm writing Sea Swept. I'm pretty sure Riptide (the short story prequel) is finished (just waiting on first round edits for that one). I'm about 10K away from my typical "First Draft Word Count Goal" and only halfway through writing the actual STORY. So I think it's safe to say that Sea Swept will be longer than Lark. I'm weirdly excited about that.
Next on my agenda though are as follows:

Forget Me Not--I keep putting this one off and I don't know why because it's half way through and I really love this story. I think it's so different from what I've previously written that's it more challenging for me to write and I want to do it justice hence my slow progress on it. My main goal for 2015 will be to finish that story. This will be a YA contemporary romance. The storyline came to me while I was working with foster kids. I was fascinated by how different every foster family is and how that affects the kids in their care.

Nightingale--If you follow my author page on Facebook I'm sure you've seen some casual mentions of this project. This will be a Lark spin-off and will feature Grey, Adele and Klaus. Originally I wanted to write it from entirely Grey's POV but now I'm wondering if I should include Adele's. This is still in the very early stages. I know what the main storyline will be, but I haven't decided whether this will be a stand alone or if it might turn into its own trilogy.

After that, I have two contemporary romances brewing in the back of my mind and it always seems like whenever I finish one story, another one pops in my head (which is GOOD) so I don't have any doubt that there will be many more down the line. :)

So here is the rundown for 2014-2015:

1. Sea Swept
2. Riptide
3. Forget Me Not
4. Nightingale
(though honestly #3 and #4 might switch depending on my mood)

What are you most looking forward to reading from me in the future?

Hello! Welcome to my page! I'm terrible about updating it but my goal is to do better this year so when Lizzy Ford came up with the Spring into Romance Facebook Hop I jumped right on! 
What a fantastic idea, right?! Lots of new authors to meet and prizes to win! 

For my giveaway, I decided to giveaway one of my books that is particularly close to my heart,Pieces of Me



Aria Watkins’s life was on the perfect path, or so she thought. She and Sean had big plans for their future together. They were going to go off to college, get married, and have 2.5 kids. But when tragedy strikes, it destroys the heart of Aria and she's afraid she'll never be the same.  Heartbroken and confused, Aria starts college a completely different person. She hardly recognizes the broken girl she's become, but she can't seem to find the strength to put back together the pieces either. 
Enter Holden Whitmore. 
He's charming, considerate, and he's making it his mission to make her smile.

The "C" Word

It's probably the scariest word out there. At least I can't really think of a single word that effects me as much as the "C" word does. Just 6 little harmless letters strung together and it leaves me completely breathless.
I guess I should probably start at the very beginning.
Last August I went in for my normal yearly exam. My midwife Sue asked me how I was feeling and I was literally just complaining like a little whinebag at the time. I told her I had a super bad cough that wasn't going away no matter how many different kind of over the counter cough medicine I had been taking. Nothing was working and sometimes I would wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air. She felt my throat and said I felt "knotty" so she wanted me to get some labwork done. I asked why and she seemed hesitant to tell me. I told her I was just going to go home and google it and jump to the worse-possible-scenario conclusion. So she told me that it could be just a coup…

Nightingale: Spellbinding YA book about witches

Today I received an email letting me know that NIGHTINGALE has been included in a recently published wiki: Spellbinding YA Books About Witches! 
If I'm honest, Nightingale is my favorite out of the books set in the Lark universe so I was very excited to see it getting some love finally!



Here's what they said about NIGHTINGALE:

 "At #3  is "Nightingale" by Erica Cope. Wren Fairchild has no memory of who she is or how she ended up in a Light Elf kingdom. She eventually meets Greyson St Clair, the Consul to Queen Mia of Ãlfheimr. He doesn't trust Wren, but in order to learn more about her true nature, he'll have to help her regain her memories. Together, the pair must travel to the one place that can reveal the truth about the past, unraveling shocking secrets along the way."
